Sentimental Song ~ Lyrics

 

Written by Reid and his missus, this swinging single sums up what remains a rather complicated time of year for them both. While single-parent poverty left its coal-black mark on CVM’s childhood, Reid’s mother’s death on December 22nd meant that, for one teenage boy, the season would never be quite the same. And yet, each year when lights begin to twinkle, and the melodies of 'Christmas past' make their home in our hearts once again, the magic of holiday music can somehow make even the scrooge in us want to sing along.

 

You know it's
not my time of year

Too many heart aches
and far too many tears

Miles apart from
the family I hold dear

I find it hard to play along

 

While I watch the fire glow
Some go hungry, while others play with gold
Away in a manger the night is growing cold
I find it hard to sing along

 

It's just this sentimental song
I haven't heard it in so long
But when they put that record on
I can believe again

 

In candy canes and mistletoe
White lights and wishes tied up with a bow
Each time they turn that music low
I can believe again

 

You know it's just that time of year
Memories play while I try to raise a cheer
They hang on the tree just like silent souvenirs
I find them hard to string along

 

Sometimes I'd rather be alone
I've got my reasons; I just thought
that you should know

The saddest of seasons since we
watched my mother go

I find it hard to sing along

 

It's just this sentimental song
I haven't heard it in so long
But when they put that record on
I can believe again

 

In angels dancing in the snow
Sleigh bells and reindeer prancing in a row
Each time they turn that music low
I can believe again

 

It's just a simple melody
Pulls at my heartstrings,
and sets my spirit free
I remember the words,
how she sang them to me
And so I'll try to sing along

 

It's just this sentimental song
I haven't heard it in so long
But when they put that record on
I can believe again

In candy canes and mistletoe
White lights and wishes tied up with a bow
Each time they turn that music low
I can believe again

 

You know it's not my time of year…
